Android P, Google's next iteration of its mobile operating system, is getting quite a handful of new features, some of which are created to protect users, their data and their privacy. It supports text recognition, barcode scanning, face detection, image labeling, and landmark recognition. This option first rolled out a few months ago but now Google officially announced it at the Google I/O.
